Check out my interview with The Fit Foodie (Sally O’Neil), and while you wait for your copy to wing its way to you, try these cute little healthy biscuits.
Tahini Miso Biscuits
Preparation + Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Tahini may not look that appetising but this creamy, nutty paste packs delicious flavour and nutrition to boot.
A rich source of B vitamins, tahini offers a boost in energy and brain function – who doesn’t need more of that?! It works well in both sweet and savoury dishes, so it’s a staple in my pantry. Try these tasty biscuits for healthy grab-and-go snacks all week.
1 cup almond meal
1 teaspoon granulated stevia
½ teaspoon baking powder
(gluten-free, as needed)
⅓ cup tahini
1 tablespoon organic miso paste
water (as needed)
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds (optional)
1. Preheat the oven to 200°C
2. In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients and make a well in the centre
3. Add the tahini and miso paste and mix, then gradually add a little water at a time until a dough forms
4. Using your hands, form small dough balls and dip into the sesame seeds
5. Flatten the balls into round cookies about 1cm thick on a lined baking tray, and bake for 10 minutes or until golden
6. Allow to cool before serving
Tip: Many of the nutrients are found in the husk of the sesame, so look for unhulled or black tahini, which are made by grinding the whole seed.
Make this recipe nut-free by swapping the almond meal for brown rice flour.
